“My stay at ZAWADI house with my Family on Saturday 29th Sept.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

I had a very comfortable stay together with my wife and Daughter. The rooms where very comfortable with cable TV, room safe for my laptop/iPad as well as other important items, air conditioning although the weather did not require one etc. The bathroom and it's amenities was up to international standards found at any 5 star hotel.

While at ZAWADI you really feel at home. For those who do not like the hustle and bustle of big hotels, this is the ideal place to stay. Try it you won't regret.

Room Tip: Most rooms have the same level of comfort

We stayed here for 4 nights before and after climbing Mt Meru and going on safari. The staff were really helpful and the room was clean and modern, with a great bathroom and comfy bed. After a long flight, roughing it on the mountain and camping on safari it was perfect for rejuvinating.

We walked into Arusha with no problems, which was a really interesting walk through 'real' tanzania, rather than the more touristy areas, although we were offered a lift if we had wanted.

The food was good and the waiter was really friendly, and taught us some key swahili phrases which helped for the rest of the trip. I felt that we had a better experience than we may have done in a larger less personal hotel, and at better value.

Top class boutique hotel to stay. Truly home away from home. Had the best shower ever. Friendly and helpful staff. an Oasis in the wilderness. Great Wi-Fi, clean rooms, quiet and worth staying before and after a climb on Kilimanjaro.

Nice place to chill off before or after a safari.

Location far from town and one might get worried about the surroundings when approaching it

Behind its high walls is a welcoming place with nice rooms, big towels and pleasant environment

Food however was just ok but not great

Highly recommended especially for those who want to have a proper roof over your head after all the tents and tented lodges.

We had a night there as part of a safari to the Serengeti etc. The place was fantastic, and the staff really went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.

Ignore the approach road - once you get inside the gate you will have an experience equal to anything you might find in a top class hotel in Nairobi.

Room Tip: Only one level, and a high external wall means there is no external noise.

We spent the first and last nights of our safari at Zawadi House. The rooms were clean and very well appointed, the equal of any nice business class hotel in the US, including air conditioning that felt pretty good when it was very hot out, and a nice shower. The staff could not have been more friendly or attentive, they even let us use their computer when our charger was missing. Meals were tasty and served in a very nice second-story dining room with windows on two sides to enjoy the lovely grounds and fresh air. Not an ideal place if you want to walk to town, because it is located a little off the main roads; but for a night or two when you just want to be pampered, it was terrific.
